The Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art is pleased to present Lined and Torn: Paper Works from the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art Collection.

Lining and tearing represent two contrasting ways of looking at paper: as a flat space where deliberate marks can be created, or as a physical material that can be sliced, ripped, and shaped into sculptural pulp or crumpled waves. The artworks in this exhibition exemplify and combine those two ways of thinking, while also using the treatment of paper as a reflection of the emotional themes that can be seen throughout the adjacent East Gallery in The Emotional Show.

Located on the campus of one of the most racially diverse universities in the United States, we strive to create a nourishing environment for those who continue to be neglected by contemporary art museums, including BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ groups. As the only art museum in the city of Las Vegas, we commit ourselves to leveling barriers that limit access to the arts, especially for first-time visitors. To facilitate access for low-income guests we provide free entry to all our exhibitions, workshops, lectures, and community activities. Our collection of artworks offers an opportunity for researchers and scholars to develop a more extensive knowledge of contemporary art in Southern Nevada. The Barrick Museum is part of the College of Fine Arts at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV).
